So how do these rate changes stimulate the economy; the owners of large institutions (like UBS - must stay on topic) just buy more cigars - it does not make them safer?

A lower risk free rate means that all stocks suddenly look cheaper because valuations go up. Less demand for treasuries and more demand for stocks.
