The seven stocks have performed well this year and you can see that their forward P/E ratios are high relative to the indexes. West said these stocks "consistently trade at a premium to the market because of their durability of growth, high returns on capital and high free-cash-flow conversion."

"Costar is the most expensive," he said, "because of the large investment they are making in their residential real estate service," which they are building as a competitor to Zillow Group Inc. (Z), he said.

The Buffalo Mid Cap fund has returned 25.9% this year, through Dec. 19, compared with returns of 25.4% for its benchmark, the Russell Mid Cap Growth Index, and 16.5% for the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index. For five years through Tuesday, the fund returned 93.7%, compared with returns of 91.8% for the Russell Mid Cap Growth Index and 81% for the S&P 400 Mid Cap Index.

Don't miss: This is a good time to invest in a bond fund. One manager has an advantage over his largest competitors.
