I'm watching TV at lunch and they announced a new product in the financial sector (country specific). I dashed to the computer and registered the singular and plural of both the .com and the ccTLD. The product/service is four words, but it's distinctive. The product would be described and searched for on all four words in order.
How would one appraise something like that? Slap up a '$500 buy me' on the site and wait for the sudden but inevitable profits to roll in?
Or should I keep it because they'll be worth more as they age? (i.e. as the product/service becomes commercially available).

I suggest you check for trademark registrations and, "IF YES THEN" check for the TM enforcement litigation history of the TM holder . . before doing anything with the domain.
Registering the product name in the home ccTLD of the company doing the product launch might be a bit of an irritant. That you reg'ed them both on the day of the public announcement might put a bullseye on you.
So . . . what is it I'm supposed to be doing here, in this thread? Oh, yeah, telling you how much it's worth. :P
Not much based on what you have described. Might even be a negative.
