April started off with three announcements of payout increases from the stable of dividend growth stocks that I track.  Among them, Bank of the Ozarks increased its dividend again this quarter.  Although it was only a 2.9% increase, the regional bank holding company increases dividends four times a year which has given it a 10-year growth average of more than 20%.  These three are among the 16 announcements I expect this month.
