Mark,

Of course it can be done, although you don't give enough details on your
data structure to allow for a specific answer. Generally speaking, you
could create a variable to rank days of the week (Wed=1, Tue=2, Thu=3,
else=4), -sort- the data by this variable in ascending order, then
-collapse- by week using the first observation of the stock price.

However, I think a far more reasonable solution, statistically and
programming-wise, would be to calculate the mean stock price for the whole
week.
