I'm only lightly versed on this subject but my general understanding is stocks exist almost purely on the price a person is willing to pay.
Some sucker (or groups of suckers) had to buy the stocks from Softbank.
Stock Markets consist almost entirely of groups of rich people trying to steal money from each other by betting on the future price of stocks. Any time you see the price of stock fluctuate someone wins and someone loses.
