    • Shares of Lululemon (LULU) are higher in premarket trading off of a Bloomberg report indicating Adidas (ADDYY) or V.F. Corp (VFC) might be interested in buying the company out.

    • Though the forward P-E ratio on Lululemon hasn't been lower since 2009, missteps by management and new competition has taken some of the bloom off the rose.
    • LULU +1.2% premarket

K-Swiss' Q4 gross margin was just 25.6%, down 680 bps Y/Y and well below Nike's FQ2 gross margin of 42.7%. (previously)

    Shares of shoe companies look a little skittish after Reebok (ADDYY.PK) settles with the FTC for $25M over deceptive claims certain brands of its shoes led to muscle toning. Though the settlement amount is small to a multi-billion dollar industry, the sector could now face pressure to back up claims "toning" shoes aren't gimmicks. Decliners: SKX -2.2%, SHOO -2.4%, CROX -3.1%.
