Shares of CommScope (COMM)  are up 24% so far in 2016 and the telecom equipment supplier should be able to maintain double digit earnings growth over the next few years, said Peter Tuz, portfolio manager for the Chase Mid Cap Growth Fund (CHAMX) .
 
"The telecom companies and the wireless companies in particular require more speed and more data every year and that requires CommScope equipment to accommodate it," said Tuz. "They are a leader in everything they do." 
 
The Chase Mid Cap Growth Fund is up 40 basis points so far in 2016, according to Morningstar. The $24 million fund has returned an average of 9.5% annually over the past five years, outpacing 57% of its peers in Morningstar's mid-cap growth category.
 
Tuz is also bullish on Amsurg (AMSG) , up 6% year-to-date, saying the ambulatory surgery center operator has even brighter prospects after its recently announced merger with Envision Healthcare (EVHC)  
 
"We feel like this is a company with a good teens earnings growth for two or three years, especially as they integrate and get about $100 million or more in cost savings out of each company," said Tuz.
 
In the Chase Growth Fund (CHASX) , a large cap growth fund, Tuz owns Discover Financial Services (DFS) , down 1% year-to-date, saying it will see its earnings spike when interest rates eventually rise.
 
The Chase Growth Fund is down 1.8% thus far in 2016, according to Morningstar. The $82 million fund has returned an average of 11.5% annually over the past five years, outpacing 57% of its peers in Morningstar's large cap growth category.
 
Finally, Tuz holds UnitedHealth (UNH)  in the Chase Growth Fund. He calls the insurer, up 18% so far in 2016, a "classic growth stock." 
 
"Growth is hard to come by in this market and UnitedHealth offers it," said Tuz.
