George Hotz, the first person to hack an iPhone, had challenged Mobileye’s technology in a Bloomberg Businessweek article on Dec. 16.
Influential short-selling firm Citron Research in a tweet on Wednesday called Mobileye's stock "short of the year: 2016" and provided a link to a report on electrek.co, which said Tesla was planning to discontinue Mobileye's autopilot system and build its own in-house system. (bit.ly/1TQ4Da1)
Shares of Mobileye were up 3.5 percent in premarket on the New York Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Sruthi Shankar in Bengaluru; Editing by Shounak Dasgupta)
