Hi there:

I am generating a series of quantile plots of quarterly returns but would like to flag one company (out of 150 or so that comprise the data). I found one way of doing this, using yline after manually looking up that company's value for the quarter in question. For example,

quantile ret2001Q2, recast(line) rlopts(lwidth(medthick)) ylabel(-.06 (.01) .06, angle(horizontal)) yline(0.011) xlabel(0 .1 .2 .25 .3 .4 .5 .6 .7 .75 .8 .9 1) xline(0 .1 .2 .25 .3 .4 .5 .6 .7 .75 .8 .9 1, lcolor(bluishgray))

Here I looked up the 2001, 2nd quarter return for the company in question & saw that its return was 0.011 -- hence, yline(0.011).

My question is: is there a way to pass something to yline from the data so that this doesn't have to be a manual operation (& hence susceptible to error)?

Thanks,

Eric
