Shares of sports betting giant Penn National Gaming, Inc (NASDAQ:PENN) and sector peer DraftKings (DKNG) have turned in outstanding year-to-date gains of 157% and 377%, respectively. To many, there's no better time than now to look into these type of stocks, with sports gambling possibly on the verge of a paradigm shift. In fact, one bull signal is now flashing for PENN, suggesting another surge higher may be in the cards.

Specifically, the equity just came within one standard deviation of its 40-day moving average, after spending the majority of the past two months far above the trendline. According to data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, two similar signals have occurred during the past three years. PENN enjoyed positive returns one month after each signal, averaging a whopping 36.5% gain. A similar move from its current perch of $65.66, would put the security just shy of $90 -- a new record high.

Options look like a good way to go when weighing in on the gambling stock. The security's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 74% stands in the 8th percentile of all other readings in its annual range, implying that options players are pricing in relatively low volatility expectations at the moment.

Furthermore, the equity's Schaeffer's Volatility Scorecard (SVS) sits at the highest possible rating of 100. This means the stock has greatly exceeded option traders' volatility expectations during the past year -- a boon for options buyers.
