Boston Properties Inc (BXP): Today's Featured Financial Laggard

Editor's Note: Any reference to TheStreet Ratings and its underlying recommendation does not reflect the opinion of TheStreet, Inc. or any of its contributors including Jim Cramer or Stephanie Link.

Boston Properties ( BXP) pushed the Financial sector lower today making it today's featured Financial laggard. The sector as a whole closed the day down 0.4%. By the end of trading, Boston Properties fell $2.36 (-2.2%) to $104.60 on average volume. Throughout the day, 807,376 shares of Boston Properties exchanged hands as compared to its average daily volume of 954,900 shares. The stock ranged in price between $104.19-$107.24 after having opened the day at $106.84 as compared to the previous trading day's close of $106.96. Other companies within the Financial sector that declined today were: Doral Financial ( DRL), down 10.4%, Donegal Group ( DGICB), down 7.6%, Paulson Capital ( PLCC), down 7.3% and Southwest Georgia Financial Corporation ( SGB), down 6.3%.

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 $16.2 billion and is part of the real estate industry. Shares are up 0.8% year to date as of the close of trading on Wednesday. Currently there are 10 analysts that rate Boston Properties a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and 8 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, compelling growth in net income, expanding profit margins and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows weak operating cash flow.

On the positive front, VelocityShares 3x Inverse Silver ETN S&P GS ( DSLV), up 17.2%, Federal Agricultural Mortgage ( AGM.A), up 11.8%, DNB Financial Corporation ( DNBF), up 8.0% and Guaranty Federal ( GFED), up 7.4% , were all gainers within the financial sector with First Horizon National ( FHN) being today's featured financial sector leader.

For investors not wanting singular stock exposure, ETFs may be of interest. Investors who are bullish on the financial sector could consider Financial Select Sector SPDR ( XLF) while those bearish on the financial sector could consider Proshares Short Financials ( SEF).
