Clarice,

I am not sure I understand what you want, but perhaps this will
do it or give you a conceptual approach:

clear
input co_id str4 ticker_name str9 return_type returnJun2000
returnJul2000 returnAug2000
1 ABCB formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
1 ABCB buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
1 ABCB holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
end

rename return_type rtype
rename returnJun2000 return200006
rename returnJul2000 return200007
rename returnAug2000 return200008

reshape long return, i(co_id rtype) j(yrmonth)

order ticker_name, after(co_id)
sort co_id rtype
list, noobs sepby(co_id rtype) abbrev(14)

I have:
- dataset that is wide
- i couldn't figure out how to transform it to long using -reshape-
because there is 3 variables that uniquely define an observation: co_id
(an id per company), period (a month and year period for each
observation), and type_return (there are 3 different types of return and
for each there is an observation per company, per period)
- dataset looks like this:

co_id ticker_name return_type returnJun2000 returnJul2000 returnAug2000
(and so on)
1 ABCB formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV formation 0.01 0.2 0.3
1 ABCB buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV buysell 0.01 0.2 0.3
1 ABCB holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
2 AEDU holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
3 AMBV holding 0.01 0.2 0.3
