Why can't more games have a handicapping mechanism?

During our game tonight, we had a question I couldn't find a clarification to in the rules: when you sell shares, and the share price moves down, does it always ONLY move down? If so, that means shares that are farther to the right (that have no row below them) don't ever decrease in price through a sale? Or do they move backward, then down?

Once it's on the bottom row, it can't move "down" any more, so it stays put. Many players call this the "ledge."

So the only way the price of such a share decreases is through failure to pay a dividend?

Correct.

Having moved right, you have a history of past performance of paying dividends, so investors aren't willing to let the price fall toooo far (or so goes the theory).

Note that if you fail to pay a dividend and go left that your price may be able to drop vertically again.
