You already know I am an investing wimp based on the KMI thread, so take what I think with a grain of salt, as now its my turn to turn "theoretical" which I am guilty of myself. A stock's worth is ultimately only what any individual or organization is willing to pay for it. Not any inherent value of the company. Take one of my 6% preferred stocks. If it gets sliced in half in one day, and fundamentals are fine I got my money back whole in 12 years. If I reinvest all the divis at 12%, I become whole years and years earlier. If a stock has no dividends and is halved and investors never bid up price, you never become whole again. I admit its meaningless theory, but it soothes my mind. And the fact that I just need a company to maintain status quo and not need growth to move the stock is reassuring...but that is just me, life as a preferred stock investor.
