The first solution was efficient and it is working fine.
The resulting dataset is around 4gb for UK (still have to do US, which
will be +-6gb). I know it is not a big dataset for a High Performance
Computer, but for my PC it is touching the limits :).
I used the treatment example to help me explain more easily, but the
real data are UK and US companies announcing information. Not sure
about the next step, I did this as a one-time job and data was
requested to me in this format. I am guessing they want to compare the
returns of a large set of announcing companies with their
non-announcing peers, based on number of yeas that a company is being
traded. (age in my example).
Thanks for the help, as usual you have been great.
