If you run this from a do-file you will see:

. foreach x in "mpg" "price" {
2. ttest `x', by(foreign)
3. }

The commands you have given are echoed. Their invocations multiple times are not. Easy enough to get the display:

sysuse auto, clear
foreach x in "mpg" "price" {
di _n "T-test for `x'"
ttest `x', by(foreign)
}

This will label each test with the variable being tested. You could add any additional information in that display statement.
