Re the proposed logic

forv i=1(1)917 {
     capture quietly reg rprf rmrf smb hml if event==`i'
     if _rc matrix b=[.,.,.]
     else matrix b=e(b)
     if `i'==1 matrix betas=b
     else matrix betas=(betas \ b)

-statsby- does sound like a more sensible way to assemble these results. One thing to note about Stata matrices, though: the conditional
logic for the first time through is not necessary, as you can say

matrix betas = (nullmat(betas) \ b)
