Clinton, brandables can be nice. Sales are far between, but a hand reg can fetch a few thousand with a buyer who really wants that name. The drawback is that the buyers usually have alternatives, and there's always the possibility that they may just try to take the name from you using legal means. Some people do well with them though. A common thread I see is when people invest in domains in a field they are especially familiar with. While everyone else is running off to check Google searches and such, they instinctively know what words will and won't work.
