Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! IF you have any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer. ++++++++++++

Rate of return = ($10.29/$143.46) + 2.12% = 9.29%

Here, since the dividend presented is the dividends one year from now, we no longer multiplied the dividends with (1+2.12%).

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
