Shares of CommScope (COMM) - Get Report are up 24 percent 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) - Get Report . '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 thus far in 2016, according to Morningstar. The $24 million fund has returned an average of 9.5 percent annually over the past five years, outpacing 57 percent of its peers in Morningstar's mid cap growth category. Tuz is also bullish on Amsurg Corporation (AMSG) , up six percent year-to-date, saying the ambulatory surgery center operator has even brighter prospects after its recently announced merger with Envision Healthcare.
