200 * 22.35 = 4,470

200 * 31.76 * 0.98 = 6,224.96

Subtract his purchase price from his sales price.

It's not clear from your question whether the commission is charged once or twice (at purchase and at sale). Assuming the latter (which is customary)...
Cost basis: (22.35 * 200) * 1.02 = \$4,559.40
Sale proceeds: (31.76 * 200) * (1 - 0.02) = \$6,224.96
Net profit: 6,224.96 - 4,559.40 = \$1,665.56
8 month return: 1665.56 / 4559.40 = 36.53%
