East Daley Capital Advisors Inc. is forecasting an average 14% growth in earnings in the U.S. oil and gas sector this year for the 30 companies it covers from year to year.

And with that comes an opportunity to invest as more infrastructure is needed.

“I would say this is absolutely a good time to be looking as this space as a whole continues to grow and continues to need additional infrastructure to move that growth to market,” said Justin Carlson, who is vice president and managing director of research at Centennial, Colo.-based East Daley Capital.
