Balancing in fourth seat.

When you have an auction where LHO opens one of a suit followed by two passes, what types of hands do you balance with?

The above hand came up at a recent MP game.  I decided to double and it did not lead to great success.  This has happened a few times recently.

I hate the idea of letting the opponents play 1 of suit, especially at MP but I like bad results even less.

Am I just running into bad luck or am I creating it myself?
