Dear Stata users,

I am currently working on my master thesis which is focused on the Dynamic
factor model forecasting.
Unfortunately, I got stuck at the out-of-sample forecasting. After running
OLS regression when I try to do out-of-sample forecast, Stata generates the
missing values for all the observations.

2011m12 is the last observation in my sample, afterward data set was
expanded.  I am using following command after running regression:

predict pcpi if t>tm(2011m12)

I would really appreciate if somebody could tell me what the potential
source of this problem is and how I could solve it.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

Edin Zoronjic
