I went back in 2000 or so when the stock was at its peak. I thought it was interesting to meet the company officers. Meeting someone in person, you get a feel for how excited they are about the company, their work, the product, and/or the stock price. It's not always easy to separate them, though. You get a sense of where the focus is. At that time, with the stock price high, there were quite a few excited investors, including some from this board, and it was nice to meet them, too. There were many different perspectives and that was a valuable learning experience for me. YMMV.
In terms of how worthwhile that is, you have to be the judge. To me it was an educational experience more than an "investment."
