This example works well with 3.4

title(cstrcat("Normalised Histogram and Gaussian fit \nof the ",num2str(days)," 
daily returns\n for the stock AstraZeneca PLC"))

(Just for fun I used 3 lines)
You have to use "" for the strings.

Why not embed sprintf inside the title command? Then you can control how the 
days are printed, precision of float values, etc.

        title( sprintf( 'string1\nstring2' ) )
