Portfolio diversification does affect investors view of risk. A stocks total, or stand alone, risk as measured by its CV. It might be important to an undiversified investor, but it is not relevant to a diversified investor. A rational risk averse investor is more interested in the impact that the stock has on the riskiness of his or her portfolio then on the stand alone, or total risk.
