Adjusted or unadjusted charts in stockcharts.com?

Stockcharts.com displays adjusted charts as a default. The data is adjusted by adding dividends back into the stock price. When a company pays a relatively high dividend, this has a dramatic impact on the weekly chart. It is my opinion that unadjusted charts should be used in technical analysis. The following three-year weekly charts for Dream Office REIT highlight the impact of using adjusted charts. What chart would you use for your chart analysis? Or, does it matter?
