What you have listed are investment commissions.

The total charge was in this case \$7200 plus \$62 + 21.30. That is 7283.39. The stock was sold for \$16.84 a share, or \$8420.00 There would be selling commission of %62 + 25.26 = 87.26

The net return on the buying and selling of the stock would be
8420. - 7283.39 - 83.30 - 87.26 = 966.05

966.05 profit in 39 weeks on a purchase of 7283.39 is an annual percentage rate gain of 17.7%
