Most often term bearish is applied for stock investments when is believed that stocks are going to decrease in value. The term bearish comes from bear market term which is associated to the bear. Bearish is opposite to bullish.
It is hard to say which attitude is the best. Conservative investors usually win during bear market but when market starts to increase, they usually are also too late to invest in riskier assets and perpetually are waiting for new stock market crash. In other hand, investors who are too optimistic and tend to chose too risky investments and their portfolios are losing a lot of value during markets of bears. Situation may get even worse if they are buying on margin.
