It appears that my first program doesn't work without -by-, either (I
must have had the original program cashed). Here is the program that
works without -by-. Thanks!

*! price_fun v0.1 Richard Herron 11/21/2011
program price_fun
    version 11.2
    args price eps1 eps2 eps3 eps4 eps5 beta bkvlps rf r g
    tempvar ri num den
    generate `ri' = `rf' + `beta'*`r'
    generate price_hat_`rf'_`r'_`g' = `bkvlps' ///
        + `eps1'/(1 + `ri'/100) ///
        + `eps2'/(1 + `ri'/100)^2 ///
        + `eps3'/(1 + `ri'/100)^3 ///
        + `eps4'/(1 + `ri'/100)^4 ///
        + `eps5'/(1 + `ri'/100)^5 ///
        + (1 + `g'/100)*`eps5'/(`ri'/100 - `g'/100)/(1 + `ri'/100)^5
     generate `num' = abs(price_hat_`rf'_`r'_`g' - `price')
     egen `den' = rowmin(price_hat_`rf'_`r'_`g' `price')
     generate w_`rf'_`r'_`g' = `num'/`den'
end
