In some ways, all the enthusiasm for CBD oil reminds me of one of my best early trades. Back in 2003, I was walking in New York and people were wearing True Religion jeans everywhere I went. Then I discovered they were paying $200 for them. I bought a pair for myself, and they really were nice. So after my full analysis, I went ahead and bought the stock, too, just as the brand was taking off among the 18- to 34-year-old demographic.True Religion stock was less than a dollar at that time - but when I cashed out, it had run up above $20.Great investing ideas are like that. They're often very simple and right in front of us. They pop up in our daily lives… and we hear about them from friends and neighbors. Just like when everyone stopped renting movies and started getting little red envelopes in their mailbox.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIf you started using Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX) in the mid-2000s - instead of paying all those late fees to Blockbuster - then congratulations. You uncovered a great business model! Even if you didn't invest in Netflix (or not until much later), you spotted a game-changing company in its very early days.That's what it's all about. Netflix's success is not complicated, just like Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) or Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN). People have firsthand experience with their products and services, and use them all the time. It's the power of what you know. * 7 Value Stocks to Buy for the Second Half It's Happening Again With CBD OilJust a few months ago, I was in New York again, at one of my favorite little coffee shops. This time everyone had a drink infused with cannabidiol (CBD) oil.A few days later, my girlfriend brought home a CBD lotion. She explained how it was derived from hemp and was an anti-inflammatory, plus it has antioxidant properties, to fight signs of aging and wrinkles. Basically it's the non-psychoactive "cousin" of marijuana - but since it doesn't have tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), it doesn't get you high.I tried CBD, too, and found that it really helps me mellow out to go to sleep. I swear by it. People like Michael J. Fox and Melissa McCarthy use it, too, but it's not just celebrities. If your experience is anything like mine, your friends and loved ones are starting to talk about trying CBD oil as well. People are even using it for their pets!Whether you have tried CBD or not, millions of people have. I think you're going to like the numbers on this one. Here's the latest on the CBD craze: * CBD was a $108 million market in 2014, and by 2022, it'll ring in at $22 billion, according to projections from the Brightfield Group. That's 20,270% growth in just eight years. * Besides the little neighborhood CBD shops that are popping up everywhere, you can also now buy it at CVS and Walgreens. Clearly, CBD products are starting to enter the mainstream. * Sephora and Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ:ULTA) now carry their own CBD products. So does GNC (NYSE:GNC), and Urban Outfitters (NASDAQ:URBN) and Kroger (NYSE:KR) will sell CBD, too. * People with seizure disorders have had great success using CBD to reduce their symptoms. That was how my favorite CBD stock got its start. * A lot of folks are using it to help manage pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders, too. In fact, in one survey from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about 36% of CBD users found that it was managing their condition "very well by itself." * The implications for CBD fighting the opioid crisis are huge. In a study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry in May, doctors administered CBD to people in recovery from heroin addiction. They found that CBD "significantly reduced both craving and anxiety," with "no significant effects on cognition, and there were no serious adverse effects."The companies providing all this CBD are raking it in - doubling their revenues over the past 12 months. But seeing as hemp-derived CBD just became legal six months ago, there's a lot more to come, especially given the sharp growth trajectory we saw earlier.All from just those little bottles of hemp oil at the drugstore and beauty shop!It reminds me of a famous story I heard on Wall Street. Peter Lynch, a legendary investor, once ran one of the top-performing mutual funds of all time: Fidelity's Magellan fund. Among his biggest winners was Dunkin' Donuts (NASDAQ:DNKN). Apparently he bought it because he liked the coffee - and it ended up being a 10-bagger.Then there's Bill Gates. He once tried fake chicken at a taco truck - it was made out of pea protein, but he couldn't tell the difference from the real thing. His investment in Beyond Meats (NASDAQ:BYND) has paid off handsomely after the company just had one of the best IPOs of the year.That's the "power of what you know."And now I think CBD could be your "power of what you know" moment.

I've got a whole investment guide to fill you in before the crowd catches on. * Three More CBD Stocks to Fatten Your Wallet.

You'll see their names, ticker symbols, and buy-under prices in my full report. * Plus, to help you really get to know the product, you'll also get a 15-day supply of high-grade CBD from CannaComplete. If you're like me, you like to see what all the fuss is about firsthand. That's why, on my recent trip, I went to the "Starbucks of China." I wasn't impressed with that but I do understand the CBD craze, now that I've taken part. There's a lot of weird rumors about CBD, from haters and fanatics. Now you can see the real deal for yourself.Those of us who have tried CBD know that its appeal is simple and straightforward.

Another rough week for the market, though last week's was the worst of the now-four-consecutive losses for stocks. The S&P 500 fell 1.32% on Friday, finally breaking below its crucial 200-day moving average line in the process to cap off a full-week loss of 2.6%.Source: Allan Ajifo via Wikimedia (Modified)Leading the charge were AT&T (NYSE:T) and Ford (NYSE:F) led the way lower, with the telecom giant sliding 4% lower while the carmaker was off 2.2%. AT&T stumbled on the heels of news that e-commerce outfit Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) was mulling an entry into the wireless race. Ford stumbled in response to worries about a new batch of import tariffs, this round aimed at Mexico.Still, there was a handful of winners. Most noteworthy among them was the 25% advance Genocea Biosciences (NASDAQ:GNCA) made during the regular session, followed by another 6% worth of progress in after-hours trading. The biotech stock popped following an announcement that one of its in-development drugs would be featured in an important medical journal, which could shed some bullish light on the stock.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 7 Bank Stocks to Leave in the Vault None of those names are the top trading prospects as the new week kicks off, however. The best bets are the stock charts of United Continental Holdings (NASDAQ:UAL), Ulta Beauty (NASDAQ:ULTA) and Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX). Here's why, and what needs to happen next. Ulta Beauty (ULTA)A gain from a stock on a day the broad market loses ground is impressive, but not necessarily a game-changer. When that gain takes shape from the kind of intraday action Ulta Beauty shares dished out on Friday, however, it means so much more. Although perhaps intimidating to step into given the slide since April's high, the swing out of trouble and back into bullishness as last week came to a close may well have hit the reset button on a bigger-picture uptrend.Note the height of Friday's bar. The poor open and then drop to a much lower low was wiped away and turned into gain -- complete with a higher high -- by Friday's close. Such sweeping changes indicate a major change of sentiment. Click to Enlarge * Bolstering the bullish case is how once March's gap was filled back in, the buyers easily pushed ULTA back for a big gain. * Further underscoring the possibility that Friday was a major pivot was the volume surge behind it. Volume spikes often occur as the last of the sellers pour out and the first of the patient buyers plow into that selling. * Backing out to the weekly chart we can see Ulta Beauty shares are being guided higher within the confines of rising support and resistance lines that have formed a diverging wedge pattern. Netflix (NFLX)It's not past the point of no return yet, but Netflix is inching closer to that point. Never really rallying with the rest of the market since its January surge and struggling with key moving average lines since May, the backdrop is decisively working against NFLX. Its next-to-last floor is under immediate attack, and the absolute-last technical floor is within easy reach.There is one hint of hope buried in both stock charts, however. * 10 Heavily Shorted Stocks to Sell -- Because the Bears Are Right Click to Enlarge * The line to watch is $342.20, plotted in yellow on both stocks charts. That's where Netflix has found support several times since March, including on Friday. * Although the support thus far remains intact, the blue 20-day moving average line and the purple 50-day moving average line have since turned into resistance levels. * The ultimate bull/bear line here is the 200-day moving average line, plotted in white on both stock charts. * While the sellers are doing the most damage, the volume behind the weakness thus far has been relatively light. United Continental Holdings (UAL)United Continental Holdings shares have been back and forth since September, but making no net progress. The end result is a rather well-established support line.A closer look at the chart, however, reveals the scales may have already quietly tipped toward net-bearishness. There's just one step that needs to be completed before the long-building pullback is able to take shape in earnest. Click to Enlarge * The make-or-break line is right around $77.20, plotted in red on both stock charts. That's where UAL has made major lows three times now, including on Friday. * Zooming out to the week chart we can see United Continental shares have already fallen below a long-standing support line that prodded shares upward since 2016. * It's difficult to see, but all four key moving average lines are now sloped downward. That makes them even tougher to crawl back above, and points to bearish momentum in multiple timeframes.As of this writing, James Brumley did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.

Another IBD 50 stock, Ulta rose above its 50-day line, approaching a 354.72 double-bottom buy point. Ulta had a huge shakeout after earnings, plunging toward its 200-day line but closing higher.
