Sure seems to blow apart the theory that the extra risk in growth funds is rewarded by higher returns

I think you've got it backwards. The riskier the stock, the more its future cash flows will be discounted and the cheaper it will be. Value stocks are the risky ones.

In any case, markets are basically efficient and no one has any idea whether growth or value stocks will do better over the next 1, 10 or 100 years. If you make investment decisions based on such historical patters you are sure to be disappointed.
