Nick's suggestion can be implemented in the 2nd loop below:

clear all
set more off

/* Fake Data */
set obs 26

gen str1 industry=""

local c=1
foreach l in `c(ALPHA)' {
	replace industry = "`l'" in `c'
	local ++c

expand 27

sort industry

forvalues v=1/20 {
	gen Var`v'=round(uniform()*`v',1)

gen listA=_n

/* Actual Loop */
levelsof listA, local(listA)

foreach var of varlist Var* {
	qui gen `var'_med=.
	foreach firm in `listA' {
		qui gen inc=cond(listA != `firm',1,.)
		qui egen med=median(`var'*inc), by(industry)
		qui replace `var'_med=med if listA==`firm'
		qui drop med inc
