Can you receive ESA whilst receiving dividends?

 I have just had a disturbing call from the DWP saying that I’ve earning income.
I was on incapacity benefit but that changed to ESA.
My question is; can you receive dividends whilst receiving dividends.? My husband has his own company and sometimes is out of work for months.
 I would love some advice. Obviously these shares/ dividends are taxed.
