OpenTable (OPEN - $985M market cap) and Millennial Media (MM - $1.12B market cap) were among the companies Yahoo (YHOO) "appeared to show interest" in buying when pitched on deals by bankers, a source tells Reuters. Also reportedly piquing Yahoo's interest were PubMatic, a provider of ad monetization services for Web publishers, and Turn, a developer of ad targeting apps. Yahoo, which is giving back 85% of its Alibaba proceeds to shareholders, is said to be eying targets that can improve either user engagement or ad monetization.
