Summary
Reports and Visualforce components relying on a Date/Time format field may be off by an hour during Daylight Savings Time.

Repro
Formulas using the DateValue() function display as being off by one hour when displayed on Reports or Visualforce.

Workaround
It is recommended that date/time fields that intend to have the DateValue() function used on it should not be defined between 11pm and 1am. Doing so may cause the Date to be translated into an incorrect Date.

Alternately, updating your user timezone may return desirable results.
