What is the difference between stockholder and shareholder?

Definition of Stockholder and Shareholder

The term stockholder or shareholder typically describes an investor who own shares of a corporation's common stock.

An owner of a corporation's preferred stock is usually referred to as a preferred stockholder or preferred shareholder.

Stockholders may receive dividends based on the number of shares of stock they own. Stockholders also hope to see the market value of their shares of stock increase.

In short, there is no difference between a stockholder and a shareholder.
