It was a very quiet week for dividend growth stocks, with only three announcing dividend payments.  One of them, Sigma-Aldrich, is being acquired by Merck KGaA, so investors will see that income stream stop once the acquisition is approved.  An insurance company, Old Republic International, and a regional banking holding company, United Bankshares, round out the dividend announcements for the week.
