2012 Return: 21.12%
Category Return: 15.88%

With the focus on dividends, the large-cap stocks have seen a big run this year, beating out the small- and mid-cap categories. And one of the beneficiaries is the Touchstone Sands Capital Select Growth A (MUTF:TSNAX), which is up 22.37% for 2012.

But this is no fluke: Its average annual return for the past three years is 19.53%

TSNAX manager Frank Sands Jr. certainly isn’t afraid to ramp up the risk levels. To this end, he has a concentrated portfolio, with less than 30 stocks. He’ll also pay hefty prices for proven growth operators. Oh, and he’s not afraid to include some smaller-cap companies.

Some of his top holdings are Apple, Visa (NYSE:V), Salesforce.com (NYSE:CRM) and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG).
