What do Brexit, the NBN, and Star Wars all have in common? They’ve all caused significant falls in the prices of certain ASX stocks. Brexit has weighed on the share price of multinational fund manager, Henderson Group; the NBN and competition in the telcos sector have harmed the stock price of TPG Telecom; while the less popular Rogue One hurt ticket sales when compared with The Force Awakens for Event Hospitality & Entertainment. So, do these price falls offer buying opportunities? We asked Geoff Wilson from Wilson Asset Management, Steve Johnson from Forager Funds, and John Murray from Perennial Value Management for their thoughts for Buy Hold Sell Live. They also share one ‘bruised and battered’ stock that’s caught their attention.

- TPG Telecom: Strong management and a great balance sheet, but faces challenges with the introduction of the NBN.
- Event Hospitality and Entertainment: Not cheap at a multiple of around 18x, price inflation at the cinemas is likely over, but benefitting from tourism and entertainment spending tailwinds.
- Watch the full video to find out which ‘battered and bruised’ stocks the panelists identified as ‘Buys’.
