I doubt you're missing anything pre-existing. 

One reason for that, I guess, is that this 
puts a great deal of emphasis on one questionable 
figure of merit. 

Another reason is that you can knit your own. 

Here's one template. 

sysuse auto, clear 
tempname r2 
scalar `r2' = 0 

local blocks `" "headroom weight"  "turn gear price" "rep78 trunk" "' 
local blocks `" `blocks' "length displacement foreign" "' 

foreach x of local blocks { 
	local X "`X' `x'" 
	qui regress mpg `X' 
	di as txt "`x'{col 30}" _c 
	di as txt "R-sq " as res %6.4f  e(r2) _c
	di as txt " Change " as res %6.4f e(r2) - `r2' 
	scalar `r2' = e(r2) 

headroom weight              R-sq 0.6523 Change 0.6523
turn gear price              R-sq 0.6599 Change 0.0077
rep78 trunk                  R-sq 0.6690 Change 0.0091
length displacement foreign  R-sq 0.7155 Change 0.0466
