What takes precedence; having both majors or expressing the NT strength and stop?

This is a problem that seems to come up often.  You have four cards in both majors as well as a stopper in the weak 2 bid suit.  What takes precedence?  Does holding 2 or 3 to the Ace in the weak 2suit makes a significant difference to your choice of call (i.e. the fact that you can hold up or not).

I prefer to double for the majors.
I prefer to overcall 2NT.
If I can hold up I bid NT else I double
