Deckers Outdoor Corp (NASDAQ: DECK) is higher early Monday as investors are overlooking subdued Black Friday sales and focusing instead on takeover speculation.

Bloomberg sparked renewed takeover speculation in the UGG-maker Monday following an article that highlighted value of the stock with shares down 56 percent.

Decker is seen as an attractive takeover target for private-equity firms and rivals such as VF Corp. (NYSE: VFC), owner of the North Face and Timberland brands, according to Wedbush.

Alternative Investment Management & Research SA said the company could be worth $50 per share in a deal, or a 51 percent premium to Friday's close.

Shares of Deckers are up 5.8 percent to $35 in pre-open trading Monday.
