    Poor SharePoint performance is normally a symptom of an insufficiently specced SQL Server, or poorly configured SQL Server. Turning off services rarely helps, and only does help if memory usage is stressed on the WFE/App servers. – James Love Jun 2 '15 at 11:45

If you are not using it you can stop the following like Kalpesh said:

1.App Management Service - If you are not using SharePoint 2013 App in your environment

2.Business Data Connectivity Service - If you are not using any external list or external data column.

6.Word Automation Service - This service is used for conversion of the document e.g. Converting word file to PDF. So in your server if you are not using anywhere, may be any in custom code(in customization) then you can stop this service as well.

And also

•Excel Calculation Services

•Visio Graphics Service

•SQL Server PowerPivot System Service

Here are some useful links to check for performance optimization:

"SharePoint is slow" is a very broad statement. Your slowness might not have a thing to do with the service applications you have activated.

One thing to consider is caching. Are you making use of Output Caching? If not, it might be worth investigating. If you are using SP2013, and are making a lot of use of personalization features, Distributed Cache might also be a potential means of getting a faster user experience.

You can stop following service application if you are not using it

  1. App Management Service - If you are not using SharePoint 2013 App in your environment
  2. Business Data Connectivity Service - If you are not using any external list or external data column.
  3. Managed Metadata Web Service - If you are not using any Managed Metadata column, Managed navigation, Enterprise keyword in your farm
  4. Search Host Controller Service - This is the service which should use more resource from server. So if you don't want search functionality then you can stop it as well.
  5. Secure Store Service Application - If you are not using anywhere like in BDC or in InfoPath data connection files.
  6. Word Automation Service - This service is used for conversion of the document e.g. Converting word file to PDF. So in your server if you are not using anywhere, may be any in custom code(in customization) then you can stop this service as well.

Hope you will get this helpful.
