I'm trying to figure out whether leverage plots can provide valuable information. See example here.

According to Sall (1990):

Leverage plots can show the point-by-point composition of the sum of squares for a hypothesis test.

Still according to the author:

They are valuable in revealing the degree of fit, the parameter estimates, the residuals, a measure of the variance of the fit, influential points, nonfitting points, nonlinearities and even collinearity
