I'm sure you could find lots of explanations that sound good in retrospect. If you can find one that tells you in advance let me know and I'll spilt the profits with you
Seriously though. I think the answer is no one knows why and thus no one knows what happens next.
I personally do believe there is a tendency for mean reversion so if it underperfoms for a while it's likely to outperform "sooner or later" and I think that's one of the reasons people who fiddle with their investments buy high and sell low
