It depends on your intent in making the original purchase of the domain name. The practice of intentionally registering a domain with the intent of selling it to a holder of a trademark afterwards is known as cybersquatting, and can render you subject to hefty fines in many countries and local jurisdictions if a court decides that you registered the domain in bad faith, with the intent of selling it for a profit.
If, however, you are talking about buying up generic domain names for abstract concepts or ideas and waiting for someone to offer to buy it from you, that is a different story. Just be careful to do your research beforehand.
As Matt said earlier it depends on the situation. But in general if you buy good exact match domains with high search volume there would be a potential to make some money. But you also risk buying a bunch of domains and no one wanting them and being stuck with them.

What is the best site to go to for domain names?I read that GoDaddy isn't the best option (can't remember why). What about hostdaddy or bluehost? Doiteasy.com? What others are there and what makes one any better than another?

I've heard a lot of differing advice, all from reliable sources, all saying different things about whether it's important to put keywords in domain names. Does anyone have any advice here about this? Do they benefit in Google's eyes?
