Dixons Carphone Plc had its biggest drop in more than a year after the U.K. consumer-electronics seller was doubly downgraded by one of the top followers of the stock. The shares fell as much as 8.8 percent, the most since June 2016, as Exane BNP Paribas’s Simon Bowler cut his opinion to underperform from outperform, citing adverse developments in the mobile-phone market.
Paddy Power Betfair Plc said Chief Executive Officer Breon Corcoran is stepping down, dealing a blow to investors only 18 months after the betting giant was created by a merger.

Jackson, 41, already knows the Dublin-based company, where he’s a non-executive director.
The operator of the London Eye and Madame Tussauds waxworks says it expects to meet profit estimates, even after a series of U.K. terror attacks led to a slide in the number of day-trippers visiting the British capital. With about two-thirds of revenue coming from outside the U.K. and new attractions opening in China and India, Merlin Entertainments Plc is optimistic it can overcome a sudden drop in domestic demand that followed attacks in London and Manchester.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
