I read a bit about the weighting options in stata, awight, iweight...
I am running a reg on the stock prices of some firms and need to
weight the reg by the market cap of the firms, that is firms with
bigger market cap should play a bigger role in the estimation of the
betas. iweight changes the number of firms in the regression in order
to create the weights, thus it results in strange t-stat results. Is
there a way to do an importance weighted regression aside form

reg supports pweights, they do not affect the degrees of freedom.
