Sevcan, sorry to reply only with more questions, but...: why don't you include the lagged dependent variable L.y in your -gmm()- option? After all, that's the whole point about the dynamic panels literature. If your tests reject the null, why don't you try the difference GMM estimator instead? (option -noleveleq-) It could be that the assumption underlying system GMM, namely that initial values be uncorrelated to the fixed effects, is violated in your dataset. And finally: do you have an economic rationale for the suboptions -eq(diff)- and -eq(level)- you're using there?
