Remember when MSFT paid out $3 per share? That led to a huge drop in the share price (about... $3!) that had nothing to do with the value of the ongoing business. Still, if anyone had been waiting for that drop in price, they might have bought the stock based on nothing at all.

Dividend-adjusted prices take all this into account. This is a good thing.
