That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Shorting Boston Properties shares
There are currently 5.3 million Boston Properties shares held short by investors – that's known as Boston Properties's "short interest". This figure is 5.9% up from 5.0 million last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Boston Properties shares can be evaluated.
Boston Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR)
Boston Properties's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Boston Properties shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Boston Properties shares traded daily (recently around 1.1 million). Boston Properties's SIR currently stands at 4.7. In other words for every 100,000 Boston Properties shares traded daily on the market, roughly 4700 shares are currently held short.
However Boston Properties's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Boston Properties shares, or, against the total number of tradable Boston Properties shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Boston Properties's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Boston Properties shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.036% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Boston Properties shares, roughly 36 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Boston Properties.

In Boston Properties's case, that would currently equate to about $3.92 per share.
Boston Properties's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
