We prove that, for a measure preserving action of a sofic group with positive sofic entropy, the stabilizer is finite on a set of positive measures. This extends the results of Weiss and Seward for amenable groups and free groups, respectively. It follows that the action of a sofic group on its subgroups by inner automorphisms has zero topological sofic entropy, and that a faithful action that has completely positive sofic entropy must be free.
