```data = {{{2006, 10, 1}, 10}, {{2006, 10, 15}, 12},
{{2006, 10, 30}, 15}, {{2006, 11, 20}, 20}};

dlp = DateListPlot[data,
Epilog -> (Text[
ToString[{#[[1, 3]], #[[2]]}],
#, 5/4*Sign[DateDifference[
{2006, 11, 1}, #[[1]]]*
{1, 1}]] & /@ data)]

Rotate all strings:

Show[dlp /. str_String :>
Rotate[str, 90 Degree]]

Rotate just Frame date labels:

Show[dlp /. {v_, str_String} :>
{v, Rotate[str, 90 Degree]}]
