```Thanks to Richard, Nick and Joao. You provided me the knowledge I required.
I will post my full syntax so anyone in the future with a similar
problem would be able to see the answer easily:

regress liq sap liqmk pprom if isin2==3
estat imtest, white
local hettest = r(chi2)
local hetprob = r(p)
estat bgodfrey, lags(12)
matrix bgchi2s = r(chi2)
matrix bgchi2p = r(p)
estimates store m1, title(CRALDSFH0021)
estout, cells(b(star fmt(%9.3f)) se(par)) stats(r2_a N hettest hetp
bgchi2s bgchi2p, fmt(%9.3f %9.0g %9.3f %9.3f %9.3f %9.3f)
labels(R-squared)) legend label collabels(none) varlabels(_cons
Constant)
