    Dear Prof. Shah,
    I am using your asgen command and find it very helpful, thanks!
    Am I correct with the default option not choosing a variable for the weighted mean, I´ll automatically create an equally weighted mean?

    *Example: This creates a mean based on MV_EU1?
    bysort Date: asgen MW_return_EU1 = Return if Ranking_EU==1, w(MV_EU1)
    *Example 2: Creates an equally weighted based on the Return?
    bysort Date: asgen EW_return_EU1 = Return if Ranking_EU==1 

    Thanks in advance.
