Companies with poor cash flow or high debt levels tend to earn lower ratings in our model.

Boston Properties ( BXP) pushed the Real Estate industry higher today making it today's featured real estate winner. The industry as a whole closed the day up 0.4%.

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 $15.47 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 52.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 3% year to date as of the close of trading on Thursday. Currently there are seven analysts that rate Boston Properties a buy, no analysts rate 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, increase in stock price during the past year, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income.

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).
