Mallinckrodt PLC (NYSE: MNK) is up roughly 4 percent at $54.80 on Friday.

Contributing to the spike is a tweet from Citron Research, which read: "Clarification: Citron does not recommend short $MNK at $54 for short-term. Wait for fundamentals to ‘kick in' and guide lower –like $VRX."

This is not the first time the stock has moved on Citron news.
