Hi,

Are you doing this as a part of an event study setup ? If so check out the stata program http://dss.princeton.edu/usingdata/stata/analysis/eventstudy.html. In that example they use the market model but you could easily replace it with the CAPM or FF3F model.

I'll will have a look at it.

That is the whole point isn't it?

I do not really need -tempname- and I know that I can do it as you  
propose. I have merely been using -tempname- in order to learn how it  
works. . . Not strictly necessary to me. I guess my interest to learn  
gets in the way for efficient coding practice. :)
