Yahoo (YHOO) and Alibaba (ALBCF.PK) have officially closed their $7.6B share repurchase deal. Alibaba gets half of Yahoo's 40% stake back - it has the right to buy back half of the remainder if/when it IPOs - and Marissa Mayer now has $4.5B (post-tax) to potentially go acquisition-hunting with, following her decision to "review" plans to return the money to shareholders. Will Yelp (YELP) be in Mayer's crosshairs? Pinterest? Flipboard?

    Yelp comes to mind. The lady at the helm is reportedly an inveterate shopper, so yes, shopping spree ahead.

    Why would Yhoo bring the money back to the USA if it didn't have to be taxed
