Throughout the day, 658,668 shares of Boston Properties exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 957,400 shares.

Boston Properties, Inc., a real estate investment trust (REIT), together with its subsidiaries, engages in the ownership and development of office properties. Boston Properties has a market cap of $15.46 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 54.3, above the average real estate industry P/E ratio of 51.6 and above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 3.6% year to date as of the close of trading on Friday. Currently there are eight analysts that rate Boston Properties a buy, one analyst rates it a sell, and nine rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Boston Properties as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, good cash flow from operations, growth in earnings per share, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins.

On the negative front, Capital (CT), down 7.4%, American Realty Investors (ARL), down 6.5%, FirstCity Financial Corporation (FCFC), down 4.8%, and Mission West Properties (MSW), down 4.5%, were all losers within the real estate industry with Brookfield Office Properties (BPO) being today's real estate industry loser.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the real estate industry could consider iShares Dow Jones US Real Estate (IYR) while those bearish on the real estate industry could consider ProShares Short Real Estate Fund (REK).
