Mindy: I am guessing that you are asking (1) how to run a regression with
lagged variables and (2) how to save the predicted values. You might
describe the SIC code; if you are using the four-digit code, implying
thousands of regressions, then you will need to use a loop. On the other
hand, if there are only a few industry differences that matter, then you
could use predict after your regressions.

Within SIC lags:
sort SIC
by SIC: gen CF_1=CF[_n-1]
by SIC: gen CF_2=CF[_n-2]

reg WC_1 CF_1 CF_2 CF if SIC==1
predict r_sic1, resid

estimates may also be useful to you see
man estimates
