pt] is the variability in return consisting of diversifiable risk and non-diversifiable risk
The first part of formula (10) describes non-diversifiable risk

From a finance perspective, the distinction between pure and speculative risk blurs because the rate of return shareholders require depends on its non-diversifiable risk

3) One result of the Markowitz-Miller-Sharpe contributions was the Capital Asset Pricing Model (CAPM), which measures the required return to assets and securities by a risk-free rate plus a risk premium calculated by the product of the market price of risk times a measure of the non-diversifiable risk
of the returns to the individual asset or security.
