The shares of casino stock Caesars Entertainment Corporation (NASDAQ:CZR) are moving higher ahead of the open, last seen up 3.6% to trade at $105.60 after B Riley Securities initiated coverage with a "buy" rating. In addition, the firm hit Caesars Entertainment stock with a $191 price target, with the covering analyst calling the company a "mispriced empire."

Analyst sentiment on the casino name was overwhelmingly optimistic already. In fact, all 10 brokerage firms in coverage called the security a "buy" or better, while its average 12-month price target of $134 stands at a 31.5% premium to last night's close.

Options traders have echoed that bullish sentiment. At the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX), Caesar Entertainment stock's 50-day call/put volume ratio of 2.64 sits higher than 93% of readings from the past 12 months. This means long calls have been getting picked up at much faster-than-usual pace in the last two months. 

Even further, options look like a solid choice for those wanting to bet on CZR’s next move. The equity's Schaeffer's Volatility Index (SVI) of 44% sits higher than 14% of readings from the past 12 months. Simply put, options traders are pricing in relatively low volatility expectations at the moment. 

Caesars Entertainment stock has added 37.2% in 2021, and on Oct. 1 scored an intraday high, and a record high close of $119.49. CZR will need a little more momentum today to break free of a three-week losing streak, with the equity losing 13% in the last month. Longer term, the shares have added 72.8% year-over-year.
