The shares of Sonos Inc (NASDAQ:SONO) are down 2.1% at $40.92 this afternoon. The sound system name is just now cooling off from an April 14, all-time high of $44.71, though it still sports a whopping 362.5% year-over-year lead. Another reason why traders should not look away just yet is that the security is now close to a historically bullish trendline, which could catapult SONO to more record highs in the near future.

More specifically, Sonos stock just came within one standard deviation of its 40-day moving average, after spending several months above this key trendline. According to data from Schaeffer's Senior Quantitative Analyst Rocky White, four similar signals have occurred in the past three years. The security enjoyed a positive return one month later in 67% of those cases, averaging a massive 29.1% gain. From its current perch, a move of similar magnitude would put SONO over the $52 mark, at a brand new all-time high.

The security also looks ripe for a short squeeze, which could send shares even higher. Short interest has jumped 17.1% in the last two reporting periods, and the 8.17 million shares sold short make up notable 7.8% of the security's available float.

Additional tailwinds could come from a shift in the options pits. This is per Sonos stock's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR), which sits higher than 89% of readings in its annual range. In other words, short-term traders have rarely been more put-biased.
