This looks programmable in Stata. You'd pick up the loadings as a
matrix, -svmat- to variables, and convert numerics via -string()- with
added "*" to get the display according to taste. 

Personally, I'd rather plot the loadings e.g. use -eofplot- from SSC.

I was wondering if in factor analysis there is any easy way to add
symbol * to indicate significant loadings , say, more than 0.4.

I notice there is an option ---blanks(#)-- for --factor--, which only
reports leadings more than #. But using this option the insignificant
leadings will be blank. I would like to see a complete loadings
pattern matrix with * indicating significant ones.

The way I think could achieve this is just to use the saved result,
e(L) factor loadings and add * in EXCEL after exporting the matrix in
EXCEL. It would be great if anyone has better idea to do this.
