“We believe the economy has begun to expand,” Keating told CNBC. “It began in the third quarter and we think it will be a gradual recovery.”

However, Keating said the potential for a V-shape recovery in earnings is “very plausible.”

“So we think the market moves higher—we wouldn’t chase it, I’d average some money into the market, but we think it moves higher,” he said.

Keating’s Picks:

Kinder Morgan Energy Partners

Plains All American Pipeline  

Enterprise Products Partners

Energy Transfer Partners  

Progress Energy  

Entergy Corp  

Duke Energy  

Sempra Energy
