Yeti Holdings Inc (NYSE:YETI) is trading at $29.15, putting it right below its 100% year-to-date level, often a level of hesitation for stocks. However, familiar support from the 200-day moving average and a 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of its June to July surge suggest YETI shares could still climb higher on the charts. Options traders are certainly better positioned for a pullback.

Data from the International Securities Exchange (ISE), Cboe Options Exchange (CBOE), and NASDAQ OMX PHLX (PHLX) shows a 10-day put/call volume ratio of 1.50, which ranks in the 97th annual percentile, meaning bearish betting is near extreme levels. Similarly, the Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) comes in at 4.13 and ranks in the 100th annual percentile. In the front-month December series, peak open interest is at the 32.50 put.

Short interest also remains extremely high on Yeti (subscription required), accounting for almost four weeks' worth of buying power, based on some estimates. For their part, analysts love the stock, with nine out of 11 saying to buy the shares.
