I'm trying to fit a time series model to quarterly NetIncome.

In general I can't find anything that fits the data better than a holt
winters multiplicative method:

tssmooth shwinters shw1= netinc, forecast(4)

Could you suggest an VAR/ARIMA/ARMA command, or any other method to try?  I
think my values are off because I'm not sure how to account for seasonality
within an ARMA model...
