United American Healthcare Corporation (UAHC)

The United American Healthcare Corporation (Nasdaq:UAHC) is a tiny micro-cap company that is involved in management, consulting and financial services for the healthcare industry in the United States.

Bank of Ireland share price today - 40 cent.

I suppose he was half right.
