How to define risk in dividend paying stocks?

(via www.dividendgrowthinvestor.com)

This means that an investor who purchased Coca-Cola (KO) at $40/share, and observes the price decline to $30/share, had a $10 unfavorable move in the price against them. This view on risk could be adequate for investors whose investing timeframe is in days or months. The problem with...
