The academic literature provides two competing theories on what drives the value premium: exposure to risk factors, or mispricing of securities.
According to the first theory the anomalous returns should be concentrated in stocks that are highly sensitive to the Fama-French value factor (HML), while according to the second theory the returns should be concentrated in stocks with the most extreme valuation ratios.
