European stocks dropped from a five-year high as investors weighed equity valuations that are at the highest since 2009.

The Stoxx Europe 600 Index declined 0.6 percent to 322.67 at 4:30 p.m. in London. The gauge yesterday jumped to its highest level since May 2008, extending a six-week rally.

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development cut its global growth forecasts for this year and the next. The world economy will probably expand 2.7 percent this year and 3.6 percent next year, down from its May predictions of 3.1 percent and 4 percent respectively, the Paris-based OECD said.

The Federal Reserve will release minutes of its October policy meeting tomorrow. The document will reveal more details behind the decision to press on with $85 billion in monthly asset purchases. Fed policy makers will probably pare that pace to $70 billion at their March 18-19 meeting, according to the median estimate.

Paddy Power (PWL) dropped 8.1 percent to 57.45 euros in Dublin after saying that poor takings from sports gambling will reduce earnings more than originally expected. Operating profit in constant currencies will increase by a low-to-mid single-digit percentage in 2013, down from a previous guidance for double-digit growth, the company said.

KBC lost 2.7 percent to 39.60 euros. Shareholders KBC Ancora CVA and Cera CVBA sold the shares at about 39.15 euros apiece. Cera offered 14.1 million shares, more than half of its stake in KBC, while KBC Ancora sold 4.7 million shares.

EasyJet advanced 7 percent to 1,344 pence. Europe’s second-biggest discount carrier proposed to pay 44.1 pence (71 cents) per share, in addition to a regular dividend of 33.5 pence. Pretax profit for the 12 months to Sept. 30 rose 51 percent to 478 million pounds, topping the 476 million-pound average estimate.

Royal KPN NV climbed 1.4 percent to 2.48 euros as Credit Suisse Group AG raised its rating on the phone company to outperform, which is similar to buy, from neutral. Credit Suisse predicted the stock will gain in value once the sale of KPN’s German business to Telefonica SA is completed.
