I routinely keep stock in the fridge for a week before eating it. I've had soup stay good for 2+ weeks if I forgot about it- but then sometimes it sits too long and needs to be tossed (and the jars are much smellier to clean when that happens!)
Especially if you have a nice layer of fat on the top of the jar, it keeps a fairly long time.
Stock is not a food I'd enjoy eating cold. I heat it fully through before eating it no matter what.
