Stored values have pretty much zero bearing on query performance.

Stored is smaller than docValues -- it's compressed, and docValues aren't.

If you do not need docValues for some other aspect, like faceting or 
sorting, then choose stored.  If you need docValues for something, then 
choose docValues.

Removing either docValues or stored on a numeric type is probably not 
going to make much difference in the total size of the index unless 
there are billions of documents.

On a point type, queries like "field:333" will be slow.  This is the 
nature of a point type.  If you will frequently make queries for 
individual values, the Trie types (deprecated, will be removed in 8.0) 
are better.  Range queries (like "field:[444 TO 555]") perform best on a 
point type.
