Pairs trading Matlab

good morning everyone
I'm developing a pairs trading strategy.
I found a part of a code (matlab) on the internet but I could not understand how it works

I could not understand how the final return is calculated in this part of the code.

r4 is the total return vector

'series' represents the prices of companies.

s(i:i+N-1, 2) = (res/reg1.RMSE > spread)- (res/reg1.RMSE < -spread);
s(i:i+N-1, 1) = -reg1.coeff(2) .* s(i:i+N-1, 2);

r = sum([0 0; s(1:end-1, :) .* diff(series2) - abs(diff(s))*cost/2] ,2)
title(['Final Return = ',num2str(sum(r4),3),'(',num2str(sum(r4)/mean(series2(1,:))*100,3),'%)'])

specifically I'd like to learn the reason of the division of sum(r4) to the mean.


thank you so much for your time and cooperation,

Hi alecase,

have you solved this riddle?
Would you be so kind to share this code so I can also play around with it?
