National Grid (NYSE: NGG ) has a customer base half the size of Duke Energy, but it also has a secret weapon. Although its business in New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island won't skyrocket anytime soon (average 0.27% growth), investors would be wise to remember that 67% of this corporation's profits comes from its U.K. operations.

The 2011 U.K. census reported the kingdom's largest population increase ever. With a 7% growth rate, the U.K. grew by 3.7 million people, compared with the United States' 2.2 million additions.

"Plus, its 7.4% dividend is an attractive enticement for any income investor."
