You will never know until they come here and tell you.
That about sums it up. The rest is just our best guesses.

You forgot the predator theory.
We would make good game for aliens that are trophy hunters or maybe they simply want to experiment with new ways of eliminating parasitic organism before they infect the universe.

First of let me say I do believe in Aliens, although am skeptical that they have ever visited Earth. I just wanted to discuss what some possible intentions of Aliens could be. I will cover a few well known theories I and explain what I agree and disagree with.
You forgot the "Mars Needs Moms" possibility, (to quote the recent kids' movie). It's quite possible they NEED us for them to survive. If all those abduction stories are true, (with women returning with missing fetuses), then it's possible that hybridizing is taking place to correct some type of reproductive issues on their end.

I do believe that they are here, and that when the time is right they will show themselves to be a benevolent species, here for one reason, and that is to save us from...well, from us.
We have strayed. Our values have declined, and we have little respect for this planet and the creatures we share it with.

wouldn't that be really weird if they were us? time travel !
and maybe we eventually completely manage to change the earth by pollution and they are coming back like guided bus tours to see trees and animals that are extinct in their time?
Most of the Hostile theories mentioned above offer no advantage to a superior race. Unless a serial killer version of ET decides to visit Earth. Although that would before more a psychological disorder.
