I am measuring abnormal stock returns, so I have a number of datasets consisting of thousands of abnormal returns (resulting from different models, holding periods etc) and then I am applying a convetional t-test (and also other manually coded tests) to check whether their mean significantly diverges from zero. Now I want to incorporate the means their test statistics and the resulting p-values (in form of stars if possible) into a table reporting these three values for a number of different settings (in e.g. 3 columns and 2-3 panels). So it's always the same variable, which was computed under different assumptions and therefore has different values. If you need more information just let me know what you need exactly?
Thanks
