Much academic work has been done to prove that value premium exists. The center of debate however, lies on the reason for its existence. This paper will be a survey on different explanations to the existence of value premium which includes risk premium for value stocks, judgmental bias and agency costs, data mining, survivorship bias and company size’s premium.
