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%
