After observing the highs of $130 last year, the shares of Penn National Gaming (NASDAQ: PENN) are again climbing the ladder despite geopolitical tensions and broader market contraction.

Penn’s Interactive Gaming segment, which represents the sports betting business, reported a 12% share of the U.S. sports betting market (excluding Nevada) with an 11% hold rate.
