a company's valuation performance has always had a causal effect on business, even though academically it shouldn't.

banks found that out the hard way at the end of 2008, when companies wouldn't do business with banks with falling stock prices. even facebook found out the hard way after IPO when its stock was tanking and many tenured employees where questioning whether to stay. stock / valuation performance matters a lot.
