You could do

capture matrix drop full
foreach var of varlist `outcomes' {
reg `var' x1 x2 ...
matrix full = nullmat(full) \
(_b[x1],_se[x1],_b[x2],_se[x2]...)
}
matrix list full

However, there are myriad utilities out there to present the results of
model estimation; you might look around a bit.  See, for example,
-outreg-, -mktab-, -parmest-.
