"when is this dog for years going to have a bark or a bite?"
Probably when it is least expected!
P.S. Welcome to posting on Yahoo Finance; I see you are new.
"It represents a lot more than 5% of my holdings"
And therein lies the problem.
I bet biotech doesn't represent even 5% of the entire market. While there's nothing inherently wrong with being overweighted various sectors, clearly you have bitten off more than you can chew. Some investors can handle greater volatility while others can not.
Again, there is a simple remedy to your malaise:
REBALANCE YOUR HOLDINGS.

According to skinnypopdotcom's store locator, they do have product in the WFM near where I work, but not at the WFMs (plural) near where I live.
You confused "antibiotics" with "hormones".
Antibiotic use is allowed for chickens, although producers are claiming to reduce the amount used or to end such use.
From the FDA's website:
"No steroid hormones are approved for growth purposes in dairy cattle, veal calves, pigs, or poultry."
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is implementing a voluntary plan with industry to phase out the use of certain antibiotics for enhanced food production.
Antibiotics are added to the animal feed or drinking water of cattle, hogs, poultry and other food-producing animals to help them gain weight faster or use less food to gain weight."
For years, I've had the same sentiment re BEN. Not only would I like to see the quarterly payout increased, I'd like it increased to a level similar to other publicly traded asset managers.
BEN is a dividend aristocrat, having increased its dividend 33 consecutive years. That said, even with its lowish share price, its yield is only 1.47%. Of course, BEN has had an affinity to periodically pay a special dividend. I say increase the quarterly payout and forgo the special dividends.

Why didn't you sell in the 90s???
What is "USPD"?
Why didn't you at least get a GED? Your "command" of written English is horrible; ESL perhaps?
Those who use the "mine's bigger than yours" card are usually the jealous type. Jealousy...it's so ugly!
"they would need an 78% return"
At least you are able to compute percentages correctly!
Again, Welcome! to posting on Yahoo Finance; it sure is FUN! to post!
Have a delightful day.
"all going up..."
While MDBX and CBIS are loosely in the same sector, why are you grouping ppch with them?
Hey! Welcome to posting; I see you are new to Yahoo Finance...surely you're not the type of person who serially changes the name they post under, right?
Sure is FUN! to post!
"What else can you buy for 3 cents."
Of course, looking at a share price in a vacuum is folly!
A three cent stock could just as easily be a 30 dollar stock, just cut the number of outstanding shares by a thousand (otherwise known as a reverse split).
A company with shares @ three cents with X number of outstanding shares has the same market cap (read valuation) as does a $30.00 stock with X/1000 shares.
The above? THAT IS A NO BRAINER.
HAIN (drop the "s") reported 8/18.
Annies (formerly BNNY) is owned by GIS.
bill, Crowe Horwath LLP is the "new" accounting firm, right?
I think you correctly spelled out why they are firing LWAY--the business is a mess and it's taking way too much time to get the filings properly filed. I wonder how "easy" it is to "work" with Julie & Ed.
This is getting embarrassing.
But what should one expect when Ed has the following titles?:
CFO, COO, Chief Accounting Officer, Treasurer and Secretary. #$%$???
Who knows what this means:
"3. Accounting For Corporate Credit Card Expenditures - The Company has not maintain sufficient internal controls over corporate credit card expenditures used by senior management and others to ensure compliance with its policies and practices for the timely and accurate accounting for, and reimbursement of these expenses.", but I have a good idea.
Under "2015 Actions":
"The Company has instituted more frequent and regular reviews and approvals of expense reimbursement requests, classification of reimbursed employee expenses, improved segregation of duties relating to such reimbursements and reduced the number of employees granted a corporate credit card."
Did "management" claw back any charges that were not kosher??
"In July 2015, the Company hired a Vice President of Finance with public company reporting experience and hired an assistant to the controller."
GEE!!! What a great idea, WHAT TOOK YOU (mom, Julie & Ed) so long??? About time to have some PROFESSIONALS working in the home office.
IMO, Julie & Ed are lucky members of the sperm club.
Yeah, I saw it; two hundred million dollars have been collected.
For what time period?
From a July 4, 2015 Business Insider article via a Google search "colorado tax revenues 2015":
"Washington's racked up more than $250 million in marijuana sales in the past year — roughly $62 million of which constitute marijuana excise taxes. That's beyond the state's original forecast of $36 million. And when state and local sales and other taxes are included, the total payday for the state and local governments tops $70 million.
That's real money, if only a drop in Washington's $38 billion two-year budget."
Re-read the last sentence; here it is:
"That's real money, if only a drop in Washington's $38 billion two-year budget."
NOW can you appreciate why I used the word "context"???
Sure, by itself, two hundred million dollars sounds like a lot. But comparing WA's share to its one year average budget of $19 BILLION? Well, it's really only a "drop" in the bucket of their annual budget.
"I don't know what you are talking about, I am up more than 3200% since my purchase"
Wow! You didn't get what hedge was quoting? I spell it out for you: ppch pays a PR or stock marketing firm in cash and a convertible. As soon as possible, even though said firm speaks so positively about ppch, it will LIQUIDATE ITS SHARES.
As far as your return, I'm not clear how that is relevant to the topic being discussed.
