Shareholders are always stakeholders in a corporation, but stakeholders are not always shareholders. A shareholder owns part of a public company through shares of stock (eg: equity share holders and preference share holders), while a stakeholder has an interest in the performance of a company for reasons other than stock performance or appreciation (eg: lending banks, debenture holders, deposit holders).
